Garland, TX patients who are faced with tooth loss have several options available for restoration, including:
- Dental Implants
Dentures are the least expensive solution, while dental implants cost considerably more. But what is the comparison of dentures vs. dental implants? Dr. Vidya Suri of Kings Dental explains.
Dentures vs. implants
Between dentures and implants, there is a great divide in cost. Dentures appear to be much more economical, while implants may seem to be too expensive. However, many patients find that dental implants are a wonderful investment in the smile. Implants can last a lifetime. Dentures, on the other hand, need to be adjusted and will need replacement several times in several decades. When it comes down to the dollar, patients who need a restoration for 50 years will pay less over time for an implant than a denture in many cases.
Benefits of dentures
Dentures are removable. They can be taken out by the patient and cleaned, ensuring proper oral hygiene. However, this also makes them susceptible to damage. Dentures cost less upfront, and in many cases, they are covered in part or in full by dental insurance.
Benefits of dental implants
Implants, on the other hand, cost more upfront than dentures. But they can last a lifetime. Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, because they require sufficient bone structure. However, when placed, they maintain the bone unlike dentures. Implants are extremely strong, can anchor in a bridge or denture, and are biocompatible with the body, made from high quality titanium metal.

At Kings Dental in Garland, TX, we want to give patients the opportunity to enhance their smiles quickly and easily. When over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions fail to work, Dr. Vidya Suri and her team may suggest professional-grade teeth whitening gel.
Why professional-grade products?
Over-the-counter strips, trays, and toothpastes often fall short of providing real results. When patients want dramatic enhancement of their smiles, they often turn to their dental professional. Dr. Vidya Suri is excited to offer bleaching solutions that can brighten the teeth up to eight shades whiter. This is done with custom-made whitening trays fabricated using impressions of the natural teeth. These trays hold whitening gel that is highly concentrated for amazing results. Professional-grade products are stronger and offer results that cannot be obtained using whitening products found in the oral health aisle of the local drugstore.
Whitening for Life program
In addition, Dr. Vidya Suri is proud to offer the Whitening for Life program. This program begins with a cleaning at the dental office. Patients have whitening trays made and are supplied with the gel needed. When patients maintain their regular dental visits, they can obtain more gel for continued whitening over many years for a brighter smile!

Chipped and broken teeth may be an issue for patients who have experience trauma to the smile. The adult teeth are permanent, so when they are broken in such a way, it is essential that patients work with a dental professional to seek restoration. Chipped teeth may be repaired in a number of ways depending on the size of the chip, the tooth that is chipped, and the patient's budget.
Teeth that are exposed to strong chewing and biting forces may become greatly weakened due to breakage of the natural tooth structure. This is when Dr. Vidya Suri may suggest a solution such as a dental crown. This is made of porcelain and bonded over the tooth to cover it completely. It is extremely effective in providing an extra layer of strength and protection to a natural tooth.
Another solution is porcelain veneers. Also known as tooth veneers or dental veneers, these restorations are facings. The facings are custom-made for patients to blend with the existing teeth in shape, size, and color. They are a great way to cover not only the appearance of chipped teeth but gaps between teeth, permanent staining, and even minor misalignment.
The team of Kings Dental is proud to provide all of these options for our patients. We encourage you to take the time to learn about these solutions and work with a dental professional to determine which is best for you. Contact the team of Kings Dental with a phone call to (214) 703-6900.
Artificial teeth are commonly used for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Thankfully, advances in dentistry give individuals the opportunity to improve the aesthetics of their smiles with natural-looking materials and methods.
The replacement of one or more teeth can be achieved with bridges, dentures, and dental implants. The most popular of these three are dental implants. Implants are incredibly versatile and this makes them a wonderful asset for patients. Dental implants are small posts that a dentist places into the bone of the jaw and restores. If one tooth is being replaced, the implant stands alone and is covered with a dental crown. Several teeth in a row being replaced using a dental bridge may require dental implants for support. Alternatively, patients may also utilize dental implants when wearing full dentures, by placing several along the dental arch and using them in conjunction with their dentures. This gives the dentures the stability patients need to enjoy their favorite foods and feel confident with their smiles.
Dental implants are beneficial as they are known for lasting a lifetime. They do require patients to have enough bone structure in the jaw for successful placement. If there is not sufficient bone, bone grafting may be performed to prepare the area for placement. Otherwise, patients may need to consider alternatives including bridges and dentures as artificial replacements for missing teeth. The team at Kings Dental can walk patients through the process of choosing a replacement option best for their specific situation and decide what may be most appropriate for their unique dental needs.
If you live in the area of Garland, Texas and believe dental implants may be right for you, contact the team of Kings Dental by calling (214) 703-6900 and scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Vidya Suri and her team. Learning about the advantages of placing dental implants is the first step in making educated decisions regarding the health, beauty, and function of the smile.
